Enjoy culinary creativity at the City Merchant

I’ve passed this pleasant looking Candleriggs eatery thousand of times. So I decide it’s time to stop looking and start experiencing all the City Merchant has to offer.

Like home – but taste better

Cosy surroundings and tartan decor (including the wallpaper) instantly make us feel welcomed. It’s kind of like going to your favourite auntie’s house – you know the one that’s the captivating story teller, wooden finish fanatic and an absolute goddess in the kitchen.

Hake and capers with beetroot cannelloni #InGlasgowThe selection of meat and fish is impressive – none of us can resist the slightly unusual but very scrumptious sounding hake and capers combo with beetroot cannelloni.

It does not disappoint. Bursting with flavour and colour, it’s the perfect combination of savoury with a sweet, sharp undertone. Melt-in-your-mouth perfection.

Irresistible coffee chocolate cake glory

Heavenly coffee and chocolate cake at City Merchant in GlasgowAnd although I’m technically full, I cannot say no to the coffee and chocolate cake combo – the perfect after dinner pick-me-up. To my absolute delight it is more like a creamy coffee and coco infused cheesecake. Smooth and absolutely sensational.

But if sweet treats aren’t your thing, the selection of Scottish and British Isle cheeses are equally appetising.

Besides attentive staff and delicious food, the City Merchant offers a totally relaxed ambiance. We happily spend the evening laughing (loudly), eating and drinking – feeling uninhibited and totally satisfied.  Three courses, several drinks and coffee come in at a very reasonable £28 each for our table of four, including tip.

So, if like me you’ve walked past this Merchant City, stop. Go inside and treat your tastebuds to a sensational mash-up of adventurous culinary creations. You won’t be disappointed.
